Background

In Burkina Faso, it is difficult for women to enter the job market. They make up only 11.3% of labour force participants. Mission Inclusion is working with the Association tout pour tous (ATTOUS) to improve the living conditions of young women from disadvantaged backgrounds by helping them learn traditionally male trades.

Our project

The goal of the training program is to help women enter the labour force by giving them the chance to learn and practise trades such as electricity, mechanical repair and bodywork. It also enables women to gain financial independence by helping them start up microbusinesses.

Results

In 2018, 330 young women completed the training (1,980 indirect beneficiaries).

Of those who graduated, 75% have entered the job market and 25% have created their own microbusiness.

The program aims to make ATTOUS self-financing through the creation of a service centre in partnership with Mission Inclusion.
